Had my check up last Wednesday. My blood pressure was the best I've had since getting pregnant, 122/70. I asked her about my platelets and they're at 132. She said as long as they don't get down below 100 there should be no problem with me having a spinal. That thrilled me to death. I was dreading the idea of general anesthesia. The only thing I'm worried about is the fact that my placenta is attached to my C-section scar. The doctor told me that as long as it had not attached itself abnormally or grown into my uterine wall then I should have no problems. If it has done that I may have to have a hysterectomy. Not the best news but if it comes down to saving the baby's life and mine I don't care if they have to remove it. I've been blessed with a wonderful daughter and soon to be son, so in the scheme of things that is minor.
I believe Lillie is starting to understand that there will soon be a new member of our family. As I've said before the only thing I worry about with her is the fact that she wants to help with everything. I'm just going to have to find a balance between what she can help with and what she can't. I don't want to exclude her. I want to make sure that she feels that she is a part of the family and not being pushed aside while we take care of a newborn. Sometimes I worry that she'll feel left out. That is something that Wesley and I will have to work on. I want her to know that she is still as special to me as the day I found out I was carrying her. Something that isn't easily done with a 2 and 1/2 year old.
Wesley and I went to a Breastfeeding class last night. We took it when I was pregnant with Lillie. Nursing Lillie wasn't easy. She didn't catch on easily and I didn't do too well with it. Not to mention I dried up at about six weeks. I'm hoping that I'll do better with Warren Klay. I told Wesley that this should go better just because this one is a boy. Since every man I've ever met has had a fascination with breasts. LOL!
